GATE Instrumentation Engineering - About

Instrumentation Engineering is the most competitive and popular branch of GATE. By analyzing it is shown that more stress was given on the topics like signals and systems, networks, digital and analog circuits and transducers. Engineering Mathematics, Networks, Digital Circuits & General Aptitude are the most important topics from where maximum questions comes every year. General aptitude section comprises nearly of easy English questions and few logical reasoning questions. So focusing on these subjects will help students to score better in the exam.

By analyzing the trends of the previous year we predict that Engineering Mathematics, Networks, Digital Circuits, Signals and systems are most important topics and sub-topics. Candidates appearing for GATE IN 2017 must lay a lot of emphasis on these subjects. These subjects carry high weightage. Aspirants should practice large no of problems based on these topics. Practicing previous year papers will give a hands-on over these topics.
